This is just a little Firefox addon to show how Mozilla's XBL technology can be used to create fractals with minimal effort. Essentially, a level N Sierpinski triangle is made up of three level N-1 triangles, except for the level 0 triangle, which is simply a triangle. XBL makes it easy to represent this recursion and draw the triangle. For example, to create a level 4 Sierpinski triangle, just put the following element into your UI:

<sierpinskiTriangle level="4" />

To use the addon, just select "Sierpinski Triangle" from the Tools menu, then use the textbox at the top of the page to adjust the level. Enjoy!
